Leonardo Levanto, a Dominican priest, published Cathecismo de la doctrina christiana, en lengua zaapoteca [sic], first printed in Puebla de los Angeles in 1766. In this work, however, all licenses were dated 1732. In addition to this, Viñaza no. 296 lists an Oaxaca 1732 edition but Medina questions its existence
Additional attribution to Leonardo Levanto comes from the Zapotec scholar Andrés Henestrosa. Father Levanto was a provincial of his order at Antequera [i.e. Oaxaca] in Zapotec territory from ca. 1730 to 1740, and later a provincial of Puebla de los Angeles
Includes a grammar of the language and various religious texts in the Zapotec language
